I sometimes make this dish for company. It’s easy, delicious, not expensive and an elegant crowd pleaser. This peasant fall of the bone chicken lets you enjoy your guests while it slowly cooks and fills the house with a great aroma. Continue reading
As Heidi mentioned on Tuesday, this week we’re sharing two healthy salads…today’s salad is made with Khorasan wheat, which comes from an ancient whole grain original to the Mediterranean region that is now also grown in Montana USA. This particular brand is Kamut – organically grown – with a rich, nutty flavor. Combined with caramelized onions, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and spinach and topped off with feta cheese and pine nuts, it’s an explosion of flavor in every bite! This salad is even hearty enough for a Meatless Meal… Continue reading
This week Linda and I will be sharing two great salads to help you get healthy for summer! I love a good pasta salad – especially when entertaining – because it’s simple, inexpensive and goes a long way. The great thing about this salad is there is only a little pasta and a lot of rough greens but when you add them to the hot pasta, they soften a little and soak up the vinaigrette. You can add chicken and make it the main coarse. Any way you serve it – it’s a healthy addition to the menu! Continue reading
Pork Scallopini is the simplest of meals…it’s an Italian meal of thinly sliced meats dredged in flour, sautéed and served with a lemon sauce…very easy yet very tasty! I’ve eased up on the flour by dusting instead of dredging and roasted the lemons until they are edible and flavorful. They add the perfect punch of flavor to this classic dish. Continue reading
Baking your fries is so much healthier than frying them…and if you’re going to pile them high with Mexican beef and cheese it only helps to bake the fries!!! This was an indulgent lunch, but one I will not soon forget! Forgive me for sending you to two separate blogs of mine for the total finished product, but I promise it is worth the visits. I had the beef left over and I just wanted to have it this way! Great for game night too!
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo! This day commemorates the Battle of Puebla, which took place on May 5, 1862 between Mexico and France in which the Mexican people were victorious…Believe it or not this day is celebrated more in the United States than throughout Mexico and although no one in our family is of Mexican heritage we still love to celebrate this day with our favorite Mexican foods…Queso Fundido just happens to be one of our all time favorites. I first had Queso Fundido at a very popular restaurant called Tequila’s in Philadelphia. This dish is mouth-watering, cheesy deliciousness! You don’t have to go to Philly to try it…just follow these simple steps and create your own Cinco de Mayo Queso Fundido appetizer! Continue reading
This was a dish I used to make for my kids when they were hungry teenagers. I will admit that I used to buy my pita bread but it is so easy to make and it’s so much better than the store bought ones that now I make my own, (well sort of, I could make my own pizza dough, but this time I didn’t).
I’ve had versions of this dish in restaurants, but it’s the kind of dish that if you can’t find it and you want it you have to make it. Dipping lobster in butter is one thing, plucking it out of butter and cheese is a whole other experience! If you get the chance, give it a go… It’s worth it! Continue reading
It’s Burger Time! I recently saw a Garlic-Sautéed Mushroom Burger on a SmashBurger menu and knew I had to make it…I used ground chicken and spices…sautéed the mushrooms along with some garlic and melted aged Swiss cheese on top….another winner! Continue reading
